Old-Fashioned Boston Brown Bread

  1. Ingredients:
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup cornmeal
    • 1 cup rye flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/2 cup molasses
    • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
    • 1 cup raisins
    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan or two 1-pound coffee cans and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, cornmeal, rye flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.
    3. Add the molasses and buttermilk to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
    4. Fold in the raisins.
    5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan or divide it evenly between the coffee cans.
    6. Cover the pan or cans tightly with aluminum foil.
    7. Place the pan or cans in a large roasting pan and pour boiling water into the roasting pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of the loaf pan or coffee cans.
    8. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    9. Carefully remove the pan or cans from the water bath and let the bread cool completely before slicing and serving.
